This was our second (or third?) trip to this particular Embassy Suites. We like this hotel because it is centrally located between Minneapolis, Bloomington, and Albertville, MN, allowing us to visit the Mall of America and the Albertville Premium Outlet Center to do some shopping and/or take in a Twins, Vikings, Timberwolves, or Wild game in downtown Minneapolis. Any way we go, we can generally get there in around 25 minutes.
The hotel itself is newer and beautiful. It has large, open areas -- including the bar and restaurant. The pool, however, is REALLY on the small side. In my opinion, any time there is more than a couple of families in the pool area it starts to feel crowded.
The staff is EXCELLENT. Top notch. Friendly, knowledgable, and professional. Rooms are all suites and are very clean and comfortable. We generally stay in a two-room suite, allowing us to have a bedroom that is separate from the living room area with the pull out couch for the kids (ages 9 and 5). Rooms have a wet-bar type area, fridge, desk, living area (with pullout sofa sleeper and chair), separate bedroom area, and bathroom. Plenty of room for everyone to settle in and stretch out.
The cooked-to-order breakfast is absolutely wonderful, especially for free! Omelets and pancakes are available for the cooked-to-order items and then there are your standard "continential breakfast" items such as scrambled eggs, bacon, french toast, pastries, oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, juice, coffee, hot chocolate, etc. There is also a "managers reception" in the evenings from approximately 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. with snacks/drinks.
All-in-all, a solid choice for families and I believe this would be a great stop for folks business trips too.
